This one liudr (you posted the same link twice for the entire list)http://www.dipmicro.com/?datasheet=M5M5278.pdf32K x 8 SRAM , parallel address & data. Need a bunch of outside logic/buffers to make it work, all the stuff that is built into Serial access parts these days.Fast way to access parts if you have IO for it tho.Or did you mean this onehttp://dipmicro.com/store/SRMB2B256SLRMT1which will be similar.Are they cleaning house or something?
I would wager that not many would know what to do with them. So much of that funtionality can be done in software now, and if not, a bigger uC with more IO can always be purchased...
Agreed! But I bet the gates are much faster than MCUs and software, which, again can be overcome with a monster MCU. The name of the game has really changed from something most people can't pronounce to something lots of people can pronounce. I think working at software level requires less training. Maybe it is just me that have programmed for a long time.
"I think working at software level requires less training."That's probably why EEs are paid more than SEs as well.
